Jack was my buddy and my husband Mike's buddy. Mike is the pastor of the Republic Nazarene church where Jack attended for many years.
One fun thing I remember is that Mike would get to talking to various people quite often before the service and Jack would remind him what time it was and to "get on up there!" Jack would have this smirk on his face and Mike got the biggest kick out of it. He always had to have a hug from me every time he saw me and I treasured that.
He was a dear and special man. He really loved his schnauzer, Roxie, and his family. He will remain dear in our hearts. I know he's having a great time in Heaven.
